Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I'm very excited to share a project I created with loads of patterned papers, vintage images, and of course trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon! This creation is a shadow box with three sections like walking the city sidewalks at Christmas Time : )
I used trims from this months Ribbon Club Assortment Winter Wonderland Mix....so gorgeous!!!
I would be shocked if I get through the season without using every itty bitty little bit of this selection!
After doing wayyy too much math..I arrived at a good base to cover with the patterned papers and the brick texture from running the gray cardstock through the embosser then gently inking with white ink. I also created a lovely little wreath so I could add a bow created with Silver Metallic Grosgrain and a bit of extra length for a faux garland.
Each "Storefront" has a different window display with vintage images over fun patterned paper with a great black and white check. I clipped some stripes from the paper to add a nice detail to the top of the collage and finished it off with festive tinsel trim.
To anchor the corners I added a sweet little poofy bow of Gray Plaid, a glittery snowflake, holly leaves, and pretty sparkly winter flowers. Inside the box itself I added a bit of chunky tinsel garland....because it's shiny....and I love shiny!
I've already added this to my hutch in my kitchen...I'm working on a black and white theme for Christmas this year and this coordinates perfectly!
Okay that's all for me...wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )
